She left the business 30 years ago.
It was the result of his divorce. Lucas's ex-wife was the editor on all his earlier movies, and his work went to crap as soon as they divorced.
I'm convinced that Lucas was always terrible and she was just able to edit around his terrible directing.
Yes, yes, no true scotsman...
"Well, app developer has no obligation to Blackberry. But it does have an obligation to its purchasers to provide access to the app. If its customers can't access app because of a deficiency in the app developer architecture and its connections to the mobile OSs, it should be app developer's responsibility to remedy. This is the net neutrality argument, and has generally been the status quo."
Comcast gets Netflix and other traffic from Cogent, and there would be no legal obligation to build out their capacity.
The problem is that whenever saturation issues come up (e.g. http://yro-beta.slashdot.org/s... ), you get tons of people saying net neutrality does include that sort of obligation.
Net Neutrality isn't just inaction anymore. The term has now been expanded to include things like, if the Netflix-Comcast interchange is getting saturated, Comcast has a positive duty build out more capacity to handle the full flow.
The Blackberry guy is now expanding it again. People who work in development and realize what this would mean for small developers are rightly horrified, but the thing is, that's how government regulation works. If net neutrality becomes law, it will end up getting used to cover things that aren't strictly related because it's going to be interpreted by lawyers, legislators, and judges that don't understand technology.
This is just another False flag story!
It seems like they can only lose if there is a big spike in claims, such as a natural disaster or possibly war/terrorism.
Nope, that's what reinsurance is for:
There's basically a second set of truly massive companies out there that exist to insure the insurance companies you think of from excessive claims.
Who is your insurer? I've never had a problem using my auto insurance without a lawyer.
Like most pre-1969 first ammendment rulings, Chaplinksy v. New Hampshire was likely overturned by Brandenburg v. Ohio. Subsequent cases like R.A.V. v. City of St. Paul and Snyder v. Phelps would suggest that the "fighting words" doctrine is pretty much dead letter now.
Yo momma so Catholic, you're gonna punch me over this joke.
While Francis insisted that it was an "aberration" to kill in the name of God and said religion can never be used to justify violence, he said there was a limit to free speech when it concerned offending someone's religious beliefs.
If he supports limits on free speech, then he does think religion can be used to justify violence, as the threat of violence if the only way any such limits can be enforced. Just because the person engaged in the violence has a shiny police badge and permission from the government doesn't make them fundamentally different from the Charlie Hebido attackers.
We went to check on Seaborg's plutonium, only to discover it had been replaced with a piece of uranium-235!!
mini quakes along active fault lines release pent-up energy that protects against "the big one"
This is something you hear people say a lot, but as I point out below, the science suggests it isn't true in most cases.
Except around extremely large interplate faults, earthquakes are time independent; the chance of there being an earthquake tomorrow depends very little on whether the last earthquake was yesterday or 100 years ago.
In this paper we have presented both time-independent and time-dependent probabilities for several faults and statewide ground motion hazard maps for California that show the value of peak ground acceleration with a 10% probability of exceedance for a time period of 30 years starting in 2006. The timedependent maps differ by about 10% to 15% from the timeindependent maps near A-fault sources (figure 4). However, for most of California, located well away from the time-dependent sources, the ground motions are similar.
If fracking is causing seismic activity on interior faults, you're just getting more earthquakes, not reducing the chances of large future ones.
